This is crazy. We’ve been working from home for a week now. Went to the Costco at Redwood City two days ago. It was like a war zone. People were anxious and on edge. Arrived there right before opening at 9. Already, people were waiting in line. An employee announced at the door that they were already out of water, toilet paper, and hand sanitizer.

Carolyn last final is on Monday, 3/16, and she will be coming home afterward. Like many other colleges and universities, UCSC will move all teaching-related activities online next quarter. Carolyn and roommates won’t be staying at the apartment, and fortunately they found someone else to sublet the place. At this rate, the school will probably close until summer and cancel the commencement event.
